    Duda flies out to right. 2 out.


    Keep in mind though folks that the Mets bullpen is still susceptible to failure.

    Agreed. Even Ron Darling said it was a strike.

    2nd and 3rd no outs in 6th = 0 runs

    Shoddy defense at 3B and CF, poor baserunning, and another mediocre start from mat latos, who was handed a 4-run lead and could only go 5 innings.

    I think you're spot on. It's hard to blame any one player today, but the amount of blunders and mental mistakes today has been disappointing.

    Of course a stupid little bloop hit falls. 6-4 Mets.

    Add bloop hits to the list.
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Justin Turner hits a pop fly single and Wright scores. 6-4.

    Very disappointing.

    Guess this is balanced baseball karma. We won yesterday when it mostly looked like we should have lost, we're likely gonna lose today when we it looked like we should have won.

    One can hope. But 6 unanswered is pretty awful, especially when you have a 4 run lead.

    Edit: no chance now. The Reds aren't going to score 5 runs in the 9th.

    Well that'll do it. 9-4 Mets.
